you dont tell much about your taste and your ride; wakestyle,freeride, freestyle, old school etc.

There are so many good kites out there, you have plenty of choice. This year I am riding F-One B6 and they are really sweet kites but they dont make it in 13m; either 12m or 14m. They are great all rounder and also make nice wave kites.

You might want to try a Core 13.5 XR2 ; they are very good all around kites with lots of float, light bar pressure, good speed etc..

mostly freeride with some small wave stuff mostly new england coastal mush and some flat water riding looking for something with some good low end and a quick turner.

The 13.5 Core Xr2 has tons of lowend yet it is a fast kite. It also has a lot of hangtime. They are getting more and more popular where I ride.
